Why your website should never be “finished”

Why-your-website-should-never-be-finished

Here at LinkNow Media, when we are working with new clients who are building their first websites, one of the most common concerns we hear is that our clients want to delay putting their websites live until everything is perfect. Other business owners speak to us about purchasing a website, but want to delay the purchase until they think they will have more time to deal with the work involved in getting their site finished and online. While it is totally understandable that business owners want to make sure they are putting their best foot forward, this desire can lead to less positive outcomes on the web – especially if you are delaying your website going live until everything is perfect. When it comes to the web and marketing your business online, there is truly no time like the present. Plant the seeds for success The simple truth is that […]

4)      Search Engine Indexing Periods   When your site has been completed then it is time to place it on the search engines. This is referred to as indexing your site. First a website is submitted to Google, Bing and/or Yahoo and then the search engines will index them into the right categories so that people can find your site. This is not to be confused with a website going live.  A website is live when it has been connected to the internet. That means that you, or anyone else, can see it if they write the domain name in the address bar.  However, you will be unable to find it by searching on a search engine because it has not been indexed yet.
